Dunbeath & District Centre distributed 3600 litres of drinking water to households in east Caithness when a water mains burst in the county.

Scottish Water was alerted to the major leak last week and urgent repairs were carried out once the location of the burst had been identified.

The utility firm worked to repair the pipe on Tuesday and Wednesday, below the A9 at Achavanich, as 850 homes in Wick and east Caithness had their water supply affected.

Dunbeath and District Centre’s emergency status was activated around 6pm on Tuesday, January 3, to act as a welfare collection point for fresh bottled water supplied by Scottish Water.

The burst on the 14-inch trunk main affected properties in postcode areas KW1, KW3, KW5 and KW6 in Caithness.

Engaging with Scottish Water secured an initial delivery of 120 cases of bottled water – a total of 720 two-litre bottles – to the Community Health and Wellbeing Centre in Dunbeath.
